THRESHOLD
Libretto and Composition / Sound Score by Misha Penton

Liminal
Luminous
Step. Over
One. Step. 
Over. Come
Ever. After
Under. World
Other. World
Our. World
Discord
Descent, plummet, plunge, dive, crash, wane, degrade
Fall
Drop, tumble
Spiral
Can you stop this? 
“The center cannot hold” 
Plant, reap, sow, eat, grow, sell Plant, reap, rape, eat, sow, grow, sell Train and gate
Load and wait To the market To the market
Sell her to the market
Apart. Apart from Pomegranate, narcissus and honey Guardian of the well
Watcher of the well saw it all: 
His hands on her
His hands on her body
Silent
Silence
Complicit
Complicit men
Complicit women Famine upon the land
Chaos upon the land
The world is unrecognizable Darkness
The Portal opens The Portal closes
What kind of world? Thresh / Threshold
